Easy Beef Enchiladas Recipe
1 lb. ground beef w/taco seasoning
1 can diced green chilies
1 can enchilada sauce (I used red mild)
Cheddar cheese, shredded
1 can of Rotel
Preheat oven to 400. Spray a 9x13 with Pam. Brown ground beef w/taco seasoning; drain. Add diced green chilies and Rotel. Stir well. Lay tortilla flat and spoon some of the beef mix into it. Roll up tortilla and place, seam side down in pan. Pour enchilada sauce on top and sprinkle with cheddar cheese. Bake for 10 minutes. I was able to get 8 big enchiladas out of this recipe...plenty for dinner and leftovers the next day.
